A blazing account of occultism through the ages and the many bizarre people--Dunglas Home, Aleister Crowley and William Blake--who populated it, and the most intriguing book on the subject I've read. Wilson 's air of mystery prose style is well researched and packed with enough detail to keep you reading on through it's massive page count. But it's so juicy that by the end you'll wish there was more. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell

In Nerburn's own intrinsically sensitive and acute style he grapples with concepts both large and small in living a life of & for "Art".

Greitens distinguishes himself as an author in a crowded genre: ex-military authors who promise to distill the lessons of war into usable wisdom for living a full and meaningful life. The key to Greiten's unique contribution is his wonderful integration of ancient wisdom, especially of classical Greek philosophy and literature into a current message about thriving in a world of constant challenges and change. I loved this book.
